Three Ways to Extend the Life of Your HVAC System

Temperatures are rising in Greenville and summer is well on its way. At Dipple Plumbing, we understand how important a properly functioning air conditioning unit can be. The last thing you want to deal with during the summer heat is a broken cooling system. Here are a few things you can do to extend the life of your HVAC system so it will keep you comfortable all year round.

  1. Change your air filters. HVAC systems constantly filter air as they cool it. As the removable filters become clogged with debris and dirt, your air conditioning becomes less efficient, resulting in a higher electric bill.
  2. Don't tax your HVAC system. When it's sweltering outside, it's tempting to set your thermostat as low as it can go. If the thermostat is too low, there's a chance your system will run all day without successfully bringing the room to that temperature. This increases your energy bill while also putting undue strain on your system. Letting it rest will help extend its life while saving your pocketbook.
  3. Think green. Close your blinds and curtains to keep the sun out of your home during the warm parts of the day. While natural light is nice, it can heat up your room quickly. This helps to keep the ambient temperature down and give your air conditioning a break.

We know keeping your Greenville home cool in the summer is a priority. If you're concerned about your air conditioning system, contact the experts at Dipple Plumbing Inc. We're here to keep your home comfortable all year round.
